This we presume, will not be disputed by any one, Democrat, Pree Boiler or Cayenne, So far was this principle car ried a year or two since, that an Indignity of fered to an individual who had merely decla red bis "intentions" was made a cilsui belli in caie the govurumeut ofTering the Indignity would not retract, and apologise, Capt.

The recent election Ir Virginia has been looked to with more interest by all parties in i every state than is usual with elections oi tho kind. It was one of great importance to per nous outside or Virginia. On the result of tliut election, iu a very great measure depen ded the success of the American party in the North. If the Know Nal ings were in the ascendant III Virginia, the Free Suilers oj New England would look upon Iho organiza tion r.s sold to slavery, and would have noth ing to do with it; on the otbei hand, if the Know Nothings- are beaten in Virginia, the Northern Free Soilcrs will compiler tint they were beatenjon account of their anli-sluvery views, and cundui t themselves accordingly. lioih parties in Virginia were confident o success, ho much so that bets ran high, and large sums of money have changed hands.

We omit the telegraphic dispatch nlludeJ ' under the Editorial bead on the second age, ind print instead Mr. Park's letter in in ST. LOUIS. Thursday, May 10, 1855. Believing D. R. Alchiaon, a dangerous , Dsn, We Luminary steadily opposed his rc- j lection to the United Slates Senate, and j Upported Col. llcnton. The conseipiences were, ho lot loose bis j llrcllOg presses upon that paper, but tliey ;ot battle to their hearts' content and retired j Iscomfllted from the field. About this time he self-defensive association was formed at j A'eston, but the masses put it do.vn. D. t. Atchison, D. P. Btrlngfellow, J. T. V. rhompson, and others, then organized a so- ret associ'.ttlon. I am informed its mem era are sworn to secrecy to turn out and Ight when called on from headquarters to I luntribute money to carry out the objects of he association to share equally the damage hat may accrue from tho overt acts of any ol te members and to carry these points even it the price ol disunion. They ore bound lever to divulge the names of members. , l'luis their chin cun act in concert every : nhere at once, and lend the uninitiated to oppose that il is the spontaneous uprising it tho whole people, w hen they number on ly a corporal's guard, When a man is pro-j scribed liny net in concert to destroy his bu Iness and character; and the poor man is rulnsd without knowing the cnuse. All Nor thern men aro proscribed and ruined in their business and character or driven oul of the Country who do not subscribe to their most ultrs doctrines. Inthismanner whole com munities aro overawed. One man said to me in Pnrkville, "Tunes are worse here now than they were in France in the days of 'Robespierre;" others said that this was the first time they were afraid to avow then nut sentiments. No one knew when his business would be destroyed or he ho order ed out of the country. In this way citizens are paralyzed at d subdued. They call upon other counties and St. Louis to co-operate and carry on tho work. Unscrupulous they uso any means to accomplish their purposes. 'I'liu i this secret engine ot hell is St work undermining thu foundations of all social or dei , ol confidence and public honor. Emissaries have been sent through the South to organize these associations. One Harvey was soul into Texas last winter, in dorsed and recommended by twenty-three members of the Missouri Legislature- From what I could learn his mission proved a fail ure. I heard of but nine members in Ihe State. He was anxious to return to Jeffer son Cily when last heard from, McClee, of Jackson County, was traveling in Arkansas on tho some mission. Lycurgua Shepherd ol Platto Coun'y said to nio a few days since "that the whole South was orgonizedj that "they had decreed the destruction of every "Ronton press in thu State and a portion of "the Whig presses; Ihul they c mid command any amount of men at a moment's warning 'and millions of money! that 0600,000 were "subscribed 'n Missouri; that the destruction "of the hotel at Karsai and presses nt Law "rence had been decreed; that they had Ui "ken Cannon along to demolish them from a "dlstanot, t-o as not to bo blown up by the "kegs of powder said to be under the builii "ing; they would not (top until every Free 'Seller ami Abolitionist was driven oul of "Missouri and Kansas; they were prepared "for disunion or anything." He was then just out ol u secret mooting. These secret meetings are generally held once n week or at tho cull of their leaders. There is no doubl but sotu 8 gnod men ore induced to join this association and get involved in iu mesh es before they understand ils objects. So by some overt act or by bloodshed and murder, they hope gradually to get the North and South to take sides and bring on civil war ami disunion Tim nomination ol D. R Atchison for tl.o Pro idency is ominous. Public meetings are called at all thu promi nent points, where B. F. Btrlnglellow, J, T. V. Thompson or ether speakers are gi n- rally present tu iniike exciting speeches and lashiiiio fury tho plosions of ihe multitude.' Even the Rev. Mi . K. re, Chaplain to the Army at Port Leavenw orth, left his oust and Came over Into Platte County, and ill a pub lic, speech urged the citizens to extreme mea sures. Bible in band, "be scouted tho idea of using honorable nwom in this war." II. Hu h, slit ; ler at Port Leavenworth, was read) to mob the man if he did not sanction ex treme measures. Ho that is not tor us is Sgslrst US, Is tkelr motto there can bo no middle ground; ind they are now busy dra gooning the whole Community into duly. Knvy, prejudice and interest seemed mixed up and foremost in avorytLIng, The spirit of honor so highly lauded in lliedays of chiv alry is discarded by these leaders; selfishness u desire to enjoy and appropriate the labor of others without an equivalent, lalsehood and detraction, blindness of intellect, and an in furiated passion that thirsts for bloodshed, and all i tie horrors ot civil war, now govern in that devoted region. May the Almiphty Cod make bare hit. arm to save our country frotp ruin. Tho day Melt Parkvillo Capt. Wallace was busy notifying eilizsns to leave. I understand one lady who waa teaching school was ordered to close doors and bo nil'. Some wo.-e gohg, sime talked of defending Iheir homes; but they were threatened with booSSndl of armed men which this secret issoelatioa could oul loci at the shortest no- :ico. Mi Patterson telegraphed (Jyv Sterling 'ri-.e at Jefferson City "that l.'io d inger was tl nmiment" nnd asked protection lor our o ves mill properly. None wan given Ue. W Vt then telegraphed lo the Pnsdent, but ti ad received no answer when we left. Hid tl ne company of troops keen ordered from 1 'orl Lenvenworth.niiie-tentks ol our citizena p ould have rallied to sustain the laws of the e otmtry, It is a libel on the fair fame ofour ii itlseni to ohUMJ them ell ai mobocrats and I ilffi ius. Tho great masses are right They t re paralyzed by the crisis so suddenly pre- t ipitated upon them. They are not prepa- c 'd to hang their neighbors and destroy their 'I roperty, or for bloodshed, disunion or civil fi Irife- But when the constituted authorities t f our country call they will quickly step t j'th to sustain its laws and its honot. p The whole forco of this secret association 3 as brought to bear against The Luminary. fhey acknowledge that they could get no ! lold ot it, and nothing was left but bruto t orce, which they were not unwilling to ubo, 1 ispeci.illy when they numbered more than i ino hundred to vne. Dr. Liebo of Leavon VOrth inloi mod m some time ago 'hot Wm. j i iV. Miller was placed down at Parkvillo to 1 1 irive mo oil". Stringfellow and he were so : t lOUnielling in his presence. ' From certain indications we arc led to be- I ieve that the destruction of The Luminary i ress was determind on months before it was put In execution. Letters were received v isklflg the price of our press. We offered I .o soil at a reasona'jle price, but no tra.le I ivas oonsummstod. J. T. V. Thompson i Sraa heard to declare that the press should be i LbfOWn into the fllissouri River and its edi- ( Lors bung. Hy the way we had opposed the appointment of that corrupt man to the of-, fice of Governor of Kansas, and thereby en- i kindled his wra'h. About the first of March last, after Atchison had left his seat in Con gress and rein -ned to Missouri, loiters were said to have been received in Parkvillo sign ed by D. R. Atchison, s'.ating that the State no longer desired his services, bul ho had nlher duties to perform certain Individuals in Parkville needed his attention. Indeed, from that time rumors thickened that the press would be destroyed; but we did not alter ita ' tone nor believe il til! the deed was done. We have reasons to believe that the money was mudo up to establish The Southern DstROerol on t lie ruins of The Luminary and its editors spoken io before it was destroyed. R, S Ivelley ol The Squatter Sovereign re- ' Ceived -TllO at ono lime and expected 1,300 more. Resides, Atchison gets (or them the j publication of the laws of the United States, j Government patronage appears to bo at his command. 1 1 its servile tools, The Examiner, PlaUtAryu, Squatter Sovrniyn, and Hi raid, Lre the recipients. But they are ready the moment they have obtained sll the patronage nt the dis'iosal of the President to turn against bim. Even now mutterings are heard. He is in danger tho moment he disobeys them. How so small a party exercise so much control I cannot conceive. A half dozen members ol the secret association sctingin concert all over the country. gel up meo'.ings, pass just such resolu ions as tho leaders want, and the impression ones abroad that all the world and the rest ol mankind are moving, when not one in twenty lire favota 1,1. to the movement. The meeting got up in Parkvillo that sanctioned the proceedings of the mob was of this character. All good citizens in Parkville are opposed to tho mob and their action; they did net go out to the meeting. Coi. Bumnors, who was rung in OS explaining the object of the mi cling, voted I ogainst iho reaoUltioUS. He advocated a resolution declaring that the citizens of Park- j ville considered their Slavs property safe in ny hands. F. H. McDonald, W. H. Miller, J, B. Bwell are more drones blood-suckers on tho eommunityi they own little or no pro perty, and have dune nothing to build up the country, but they and a few others aro the i willing tools of the masters. Are any of tho presses in St. Louis apologizing lor uphold ing this association ! Do they want to seo i the same state of things exist in St. Louis as the "work goes bravely on!" Do they want j to see Southern men refusing to trade wilh Northern men and Northern men refusing to trade with Southern men till confidence is destroyed and that noble class ol business men, both from tho North und the 8oulh,who gi"0 credit and character to St. Louis, driven by the force of circumstances to New Orleans, Memphis.

I Libfkty or Cmsoibok-vTrb Mobmoss, Iii the United Stules, though every man may think us he pleases, he cannot act as he pleises, So long as be does not make his theorot cal opinion!, the guide ol his actions i this Government has neither the right nor the disposition to interfere. In politics he may be u disciple of unarcby or despotism, provided be dot s not commit any overt act in I violation of the laws und institutions of his country; and in religion ho may believe in I the efficacy of human sacrifices, or that the faith he professes is the mily rood to sulva- I lion, but he cannot be permitted to oiler up , human sacrifices or to molest his fellow-croa-, ti.res in the Common highway ol life under , pretence of their being on the wrong trat kv. fin short, he may adopt vvba: faith ho pleas let, provided il docs not lead him to a viol, i I tion of the laws and is not in direct opposi tion to those great universal principles of I morality and justice foiindod in reason and sanctioned by divine uulburity. j lie is at perfect liberty to doubt whether the Ten Commandments were delivered to tMoees hrom the mouth of the Most High, but he may not discard the obligations they impose, becui se that would be an offence against the rights of others, the principles of morality, and the laws both of nature uud so ciety. Toleration, properly speakil g, is limited to Ihe free exercise of opinion, and cannot, either in a civil or religious point ot view, ho extended lo tliose acts whiih either violate the established decorums of civilized lile, tho peace of society, or the laws ol the land, however the perpetrat ir may plead the dictates of conscience in justification. In performing tho duties of a citizen of tbsU. States there is no higher law than the Con stitution. The case of the Mormons may serve fur ther to illustrate our idea ol the rights of con icience. Without questioning their right to believe in the divino mission of Joe Smith or Brigham Young, ur to have as many wives and SOMUklnOI as King Solomon or the (iraud Turk, we certainly do deny their rigtlt, as members of Ibis Confederation, to set t.p the InspiroUoM of their prophet in opposition to the' ouojatMutional powers ot ip President of the United States orrnv m thcr branch of (ho Government. N o- do o n think llnflr privileges extend to a viola on of I IrOSS law and Institutions w hich are to basis ofour manner', habits, and morals b 'olygamy, however sanctioned by the exam- u lo of the patriarchs is a criminal offence iu c very Stale of the Union, and n commtilty I which every mnn m iy have na many w ives a s he pleases can no more assimilate with U liose who admit of but one than if it sane- Il ioncd the commission of murder or any other h rime against the laws of nature und society, a 'ho maxims of the patriarchs are not safe b utiles for us, nor is the story of Jucob nnd It SsSU a very saluttry example for our imita- J ion. Polygamy is not now nor hna it been a ractised by the most devoted disciples ol M1 loses since the dispersion ol the trioes; and t f it were it should be remembered that Ju- I b slam is not Christianity. The Divine Chris-1 Ian Lawgiver had, tor one great object cf; ill mission, a complete revision of the Levit- cal code. j f Polygamy at onco creates a radical r.nd a rrecoticilenhle distinction between comuiu- I lilies where it evists and those in which it Is I onsidered a crime. It strikes at the root of ; ,! ill social organization; it. pervades the fire- ide; It enters into every relation human be- i s ngs bear to each other; and tho Mormon i villi his dozen concubines, liko the Turk v vlth his harem, can never preservo anything r ike social harmony or common interest with , i i christian community, it le impossible to," leslmllate States where bigamy is o ie of the ' leepestof crimes with ono in which it is re-, ' sognised and practiced. ' If there were no other objection to the in- ' in duction of this ini ongruous o'emoot into 1 iur syslem the invariable and 'novitable con- ' sequences it produces would be suldctent. 11 Wherever it has prevailed it has caused the ' iegradatlon of woman, and the degradation of, ' woman is the sure precursor of that of man. ! Among the patriarchs women were mere : ' household slaves, anil might be turned out of 1 house and homo to roam ike Hagar iu the wilderneas. Among the followers of Ma- ; hornet now the peculiar object af christian ' sympathy she is-, while on earth, a slave to the set.sual sppeti as of men, und squally so in the Mahomednn paradise And a i where over poligamy prevails, uud it will be forever and ever. This rah jle of wives must be ei ther served by slaves or become slaves them selves. When the Prophet Brigham wants' a servant to attend to bis dnry he tak-s un additional wife, and thus supplies himself with one on the cheapest possible terms, since these wives receives no other wages bul those of iniquity. If we contemplate the Mormons in a po litical point of view, it will, we think. nt once become apparent to every reflecting an i ntl that it ia equally impossible the Territory of Utah oail ever become, under its prist nt or ganization, a harmonious member of this Confederation. So long as the f atemity hold as one of their lundamentul doctrines that the whole earth is their predestined in heritance, what can WO expect from them but uu titter disregard to the rights of prop erty! And so long us they pay an abject de ference to the revolationa of iheir prophe', and ole y llicin implicitly us manifestations of the will of 1I14 Supremo Being, cun we ever expect them to conform to the provisions of the Constitution, unless they should chance to harmonise with tho revolationa of the prophet! That this will not bo the case ii evident from the past history of tho Mor mons. Wherever they have settled they wuro the harbingers of dissension and blood shed. They placed themselves in opposit on to tho laws by which those around them were governed, end refused submission to the constituted sutbotitiOS of the Stute, Tbey were consequently bunted from ono i to another, us people always havo been and always will bo who arrogate to themseves iho right to violate the decencies of society, lefusc obedience to the laws, reject the re straints which govern the habits, manners, and morals of those among whom they have intruded, and ut the same time denounce all those who differ with them in their dogmas as unworthy uf till association with them selves. As might be expected, since they became Territorial members ol the Union '.hey have placed themselves in direct opposition to the logitimste suthority of the Government of the United States by rejecting its ofiicers and refusing to recognize any authority but that of their inspired prophet. In this, wo thick very unfortunately, they were humored by Mr. Fillmore, who conferred on B. Young , the office of civil governor in addition to that far higher station he held as the oraeloof the Divit.o Will. Thus Governor Brigham Voting now combines in his person the sanc tity of u representative of the Divinity and and the temporal authority of an offioarof the G ivernment of ihe United States. Tho association is supremely absurd, if not sb- j Isolutely blasphemous Union. From the Philadelphia Price Current. WOOL. Iii accordance with our usual custom, we devote some attention to the wool interest, previous to the commencement of "the clip." Our predictions ol last year, bused as tbey were upon an accurate knowledge of the con dition ot things, were, in tho main, verified ' by the result. This much may we say for i ourselves, without indulging in a conceited . or boastful spirit. During lust season, more wool was receiv ed here than during liny previous year, in consequence of the great increase in the fsc ilties ot transportation afforded by the bulld og ol the Pennslyvsnis C. R. R. und other mportant internal improvements, chielly due to Philadelphia enterprise. These improve ments open to the wool growers a sale and speedy means of sending their marketing, to this niaiket, nnd of this they were no' slow to take udv autage. The demand exhibits a steady increase, and the probabilities Tutor a long c mtiuunhce ol this cheering statu of trade. The aspect of iilf.i-s at h tne and ubrcvd, exi III s the in ference that a deoltne in this branch ol in dustry and trsfiie is not to lo iked for at pres. ent, and the maki t, therolore. continues in a healthy condition. Most of the tine wool is centered herd. It is estimated H about a quarter of a million of pounds of wool are Consumed weekly in the vicinity of Philadel phia, by the factories, for which the city is renowned, in the manufacture of cloth, cassi msres, carpets, pantaloon stuffs, satinels, rugs, shuwls unii fancy goods. Then there is a continuousand steady demand for the fac tories of tho Northern und Eastern States, which annnally produce animiusmse quantity of every vuriety of w oolen goods, w hich ure receive.' here in exchange for the wool sent thither from this market. Thus Philadelphia Ie made the centre of a great trade in wool, j which cannot but increase in value and lm ' rrtanee.attd h ive i vast I Afluonoo upin oth krsm hs ol commerce, We have said that the war)! market is In a en thy condition, and that the demand cxhi Hs a steady increase; but we must not bo uderatooa as tncati.ng thai the pres"nt pri es can be maintained. On the contrary.we ould say that it is the prevailing improssion ajroMg those who should bo well informed pon the subject tbat prices must dcclinp, issmuch us for months past, the medium and nver grades of woolen goods have met with slow snlc at rates which must net a heavy jss to the manufacturer and tho slock is nw heavier than at this porind for many ears past. A number of the mills here and t the east have recently ceased operations, l consequence of the disparity of prices, nnd hose facts Indic ite that it will not be long elore a Considerable decline is experienced. Another fact is woll worthy of mention ml that is, that a largo amount of the old lip is s'ill held in tho wost, and this coming jrwaru with the new, will undoubtedly have tendency to depress the market. It is not kely that the speculative spirit which hi s isretoforo prevailed will occur this year, as ost of those engaged in tl.o;o occupations uri ig the past two years, came out nt tho iiiallest end of the horn. As far as we can nsc.ertr.in, the supply of root this year will be much larger thin du ing last season. It Is true that a large nUfll cr of the animals from which wo derive thai rticle, have died of disease, and that the tool grewers of Ohio, Western Pennsylva lia, Virginia, and other States, have suffereb nurh loss in consequence, but it is certain hat for this reason, a far less number than HUal have been killed for their hide and tul O'.v. Besides, many of the wool growers are n necessitous "circumstances. Owing to he scarcity and high prices of provisions, bey have been compelled to spend largo lUmi for the purchase of ncceasary food, and sill be induced to send their wool to market lorlier than usual to replenish their funds. The statistics of the Woolen interest form in important item in the Census of the Uni ;ed Slates token in 1800. According to the census We b arn that the quantity of Wool raised in the Union, in 185(1 was 5 J,7S'i,174 pounds. The principal producing States, and the quantities raised in each, were ns follows: New Vork, 10,071.301 piunds. Ohio, 10,1'JR 371 Penrsylvanis, 4,4Si,37o " Vermont, 3,400,717 " Virginia, 'J,SG0,7l)j ' There wero ill the United States '.550 woolen factories, with a cayltal "of 998.1 18, G50. In these were used 70,852,89 lbs. ot Wool, pirtiy imported, nnd 22,073 male9,nnd .6,574 lemalea were employed. The manu factured products were worth 843,907,800. The value of woolen goods im; ortcil into the United States in l?o3, exceed 28,000, 000. A letter from a member of Parliament In forms us that the total quantity of sheep's wool, (including Lama jnd Alpaca wool,) imported into the United Kingdom in 1854, am united to 106,191,900 pounds, of which 30,333,400 ihs. were imported from foreign tatCS, and 70,785,545 lbs. from British pos sessions (out of Europe.) The quantity re exported was 94,009,963 lbs, and the nst quantity left lur home consmption, 81,619, 732 lbs. The quantity ot goats' hair or wool imported in 1854 amounted to 1,335,319 lbs. of w hich only 107,169 lbs. wero rei'xported. The declared value of British Wcolen man ufactures exported in the year 1S54 amounted to X'.. 1-0,759, and tho value of woolen yarn so exported to JC 1 ,557,6 12, making together u sum total or 19,678,871. Crow-Bar Law. The validity of the Crow-bar law enacted by a Locofoou Legislature and enlorced by Locoloco officials, so far us it applied to the Jefferson Branch ot the State ol Ohio, was tested, by the Court of Common Pleas, on yesterday, Judge Thomas Menns, presiding. An action was brought by the Bunk against Alexander Skelly, Treasurer of Jefferson county, for trespass, In entering tho Bank, taking and carrying iff 0,068.88 the a mo ml of taxes, including costs, &., for tho year !8.)2. The Hank claimed that the tax es, bo re.-ted from that institution, was a violation of ita charter, of a contract exist ing between the State nnd the Bank. Tlu issue was consequently upon the con tjitutionality of the law, which the Court pronounced unconitttutional, nnd in chnrging the Jury instructed them to render their ver dict, which they did establishing the guilt of the defendant nnd awarding the Bank $6, 292.80, being the original amount, with in terest added. Thus explodes another of tho radical laws attempted to be practised upon the banking institutions of the of tho Stated, by Locofo 00 legislators and S'ute officers, without a single precedent, o: the aemblunce of right, in oi lier law or equity. The more effectu ally knocked in the head too, whon one of its principal defender in this section of the State sat in Judgment at all its execution, and plied the hammer to the last nail in its cof fin. If this were the end of the matter the peo ple might have reason to complain of Lo cofoco legislation bui'tbis i not all. The Treasurer (who of course went by his in structions,) has received for his fees, count ing the two years, 1852 and 1853 alone, tho sum of eight hundred, eighteen dollars and forty-Jive ants which the tax payers wil! have to pay besides the principal, interest, tt , tnnking In all for the two years between twelve and fifteen thousand dollars'. So much for LoOOfoCO legislation, radicalism and crow bar laws.
